wine bin dependencies problem

Postby Cr4ashT3stDum44'/ » Thu Jun 07, 2012 6:25 am

Hi all, I am a complete linux newbie, just started using lmde dual booting with win7. I thought it would be a good idea for my first try at installing programs in lmde to get wine (I love dwarf fortress and as I dont understand how to run the linux version I wanted to run the windows one with all my saves).

first I tried package manager, downloaded all it proposed me with the filter "wine"
I open the terminal, type wine... says I should install wine-bin.

after looking hi and lo on google I found this : http://www.fandigital.com/2012/05/insta ... linux.html
tried to follow the steps. The library installed just fine but when I get hold of wine-bin here :http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/
and try to install it :
Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libwine-bin-unstable (= 1.5.5-0.1)

I must be doing something wrong. Before searched the forum, found the topic about the proper way to install mint in lmde but I cant understand a tenth of what is being said there (complete newbie)...

If anyone could help me understand the process of installing programs (and especially wine) in lmde I would be most grateful.

That appears to be good information on setting up WINE.

You are just missing the first two steps.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)


I chose to follow this:


1. Make sure ttf-mscore* is installed by Synaptics first

2. Download those *.deb files for your 32Bit or 64Bit Version.
Open a Terminal Window:

Code: Select all

cd /path/to/your/downloaded/deb/files
sudo dpkg -i libwine*
sudo dpkg -i wine-*
sudo dpkg -i wine-unstable*

To add gecko, do this:

Code: Select all

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/wine/wine_gecko-1.5-x86.msi
sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/wine/gecko
sudo mv wine_gecko-1.5-x86.msi /usr/share/wine/gecko/

Open Synaptics and "Fix Broken Packages, then Apply

3. Then run the configuration for Wine in a Terminal:

Code: Select all

winecfg


Logout & Login

4. Install your Windows Software for testing with:

Code: Select all

cd /path/to/win/software/for/wine/install
wine setup.exe
